    A 16GB iPhone just sold on eBay for $600.00 Unlocked. The seller said that it was "new in the box, sealed". :rolleyes: That seller made a quick and easy $100.

    Are people crazy? Don't they watch the news? Don't they get that a new one is coming out in a few days? :apple:

    I sold my used 8Gb one for a £100 profit, which is about $200. Yes, there are some stupid people out there!

    This is the first time you've noticed that people on eBay have no common sense? For real?

    People have also started to hijack ebay accounts and buy things. Not say that that is the case here. But it could be.

    then you've got the idiots that buy broken iphones for up to $250. I just sold one that I found in a parking lot. It looked like it had been run over by a car, and I sold it for $185.

    Read the other threads that talk about this. I cleared 350 on two refurb iPhones from AT&T. That 350 is after eBay and Paypal fees and shipping.

    I think there is not one local news channel that did not report the story last month. I know my local news did and I rarely turn on my TV anymore, yet I still heard it.

    Yet another reason not to buy Apple products on E-bay....but to sell them is another story.

    I hadn't been on eBay in forever. A couple of days ago, I put a Dish Network receiver in my watch list. Yesterday, I got some phony e-mail saying something about a bid I made on a 1918 Model T Ford. They've got some bad scams, those eBay peoples.
